to move you to a different politician. and that is bill clinton who famously gave democrats cover, as we say, and said, well, i actually think he ought to let people keep their health care coverage. caused quite the stir. he did an interview with our juan carlos lopez and talked about that moment when he said, i think the president ought to change his mind on this. >> i got a lot at stake here personally in the work i have done for health care and the work i tried to support -- the support i have tried to give the president, and hillary does, too. >> i love the and hillary does, too. it caught more than a few ears because my feeling is that hillary clinton, were she to run say in 2016 for president, would like this off the table and would like to have distance from it. >> well, i don't know if i agree with that because i still do think that the politics will at the end of the day will play out in our favor as folks see what the difference is between the two sides, but, look, you know, if people think it is news that bill and hillary clinton consider themselves partners in a lot of their
people visited the site on monday and former president bill clinton also spoke about the law yesterday saying its legacy will not be impacted as long as its flaws are fixed. >> if the computer problems are all fixed and it's up and running and healthy in the next several weeks, i this i that the damage will be minimal. when problem passed a bill to provide drug cover annual to senior citizens under the medicare program, it was more unpopular when it was passed and there were lots of problems in the beginning with the computers. >> so the effects would be a men mum? >> if it's fixed, that would be right. if it's worked through, i think in four or five months, people will be talking about it entirely differently and no one will want to repeal this law. they want it to work. >> you remember in 2004 when medicare part d passed, we had this same coverage and all because it was just so bad and they had the same problem, george bush had press conferences and they were -- oh, wait, that didn't happen. that's right, democrats are making that up. >> okay. >> the only thing involved in medicare p
in and we will read your comments at the end of the show. >>> former president bill clinton saying that when he urged the president to keep his promise to millions of americans, that he was trying to help. >> i don't think you can find anybody in america you has worked harder for his re-election or went out of his way to explain the bill to more people than i did. >> great to see you governor. >> thank you nice to be with you. what do you make of the former president? you worked for him. you know him well. he got president obama to make a move and come forward and make an apology and now he is saying he is trying to help. i fall on what president clinton said. he was trying to be helpful. he campaigned for the health care act and been at president obama's side. i think those rocks were miss interpreted. the truth is that president obama has said that if you are able to keep your health care plan you can do it. i think he is trying to fix that. i don't think that president clinton was trying to create distance for the next race. >> so you don't think it had anything to do with trying to keep
are not that of george w. bush, they are not of bill clinton, they are of hits. yes, the obama record poses a fundamental threat to millions of americans and he's got that right. take a look under mr. obama. the income gap, four times faster has expanded four times faster than it did under president george bush. under president obama, 6.7 americans in the millions have fallen into poverty. the same one that had the audacity to stand before the cameras and speak as though he had absolutely been uninvolvee and policies for the past five years. it's an extraordinary thought. the number of workers receiving disability benefits under his administration over the course of the past five years has risen by 20% to almost 9 million people. 9 million people under president obama. under president obama, 21.6 americans are underemployed or unemployed and giving up looking for work. under president obama, the average duration has nearly doubled to more than 36 weeks and today, president obama joined the nearly 70% of voters who say that the united states is now headed in the wrong direction. so often it seems that you
, chris, because i was there when we went after bill clinton and people were accusing bill clinton of killing vince foster -- >> i know all that. >> clinton chronicles, killing people left and right. let me just say we were pretty savage, not me, but what right detector >> let me give you another example. >> pretty savage on bill clinton as much so as on barack obama. >> remember how al gore handled his defeat and the way supreme court addressed that issue and got the presidency for george w. bush. that's how our constitution works. al gore went out there and basically accepted that without complaint. al gore accepted the fact and then he won by 600,000 votes that w. was president. there were no legal challenges. there is an asymmetry between the hard right and the left. to say they are the same not true. >> there's an extraordinary speech by al gore that night and many observers thought if al gore had spoken that way over the campaign he probably would have won that election. >> if he had richard goodwin throughout the campaign instead of the concession speech it would have helped
and laws in the 400s and 500s and 600s and when newt gingrich was battling with bill clinton, that was in the 300s. right now in the 113th congress, we have a year to go and they finished 56 pieces of legislation that has become law. the 112th congress was then a low of 283. we are living in unprecedented times. you have a blame game of who is responsible for this. the numbers speak for themselves. >> what's interesting is the lines of attack, this idea that the senate has been slow. we sent all these bills to the senate. the ways of parliamentary procedure, the senate was built to be slow. that is the reason as to why. there is a filibuster here. they can't pass as quickly as the house can. when that goes out to the american people, it's not that it hurts one party more than the other, but it's a house from all incumbent. >> that's one of the big arguments. people say washington is broken. whether you are republican or democrat, it's not working at all the way it should be. the numbers do speak for themselves. when john boehner said it acted on the 150 pieces of legislation.
. politicians and celebrities taking to facebook and twitter posting their condolences. former president bill clinton tweeting this photo with this caption, i will nevertheless forget my friend. and george w. bush posting, he was one of the great forces for freedom and equality of our time. he bore his burdens with dignity and grace. he will be miss but his contributions will live on forever. >>> and john boehner tweeted. and condoleeza rice posting, throughout history a few special people have been able to transcend differences and change theor the better. nelson mandela is one of those people. samuel l. jackson tweeting. and mike tyson tweeting this picture with this caption i'm hearing about nelson mandela's death, sending prayers to his family. and coming up, more coverage of the breaking news, the death of former south african president nelson mandela. . >>> tonight the news breaking around the world, former south african president, nelson mandela has died. he dismantled south africa's apartheid system and became the country's first black president. you know, it's a sad night to us altho
has been arguing as much, as bill clinton said -- a lot of the kinks worked out or -- i frankly -- the tsunami to come with corporate bosses when they have to kick in and decide if they kick a lot of people out. they hope and trust that more ultimately are proven to benefit and not, and that does decide this thing's fate. how many more benefit than don't. >> we have been paying for this for the last few years. we're paying higher taxes as a result and we have seen nothing in response. you're telling young people, they can still on their parents' plan, guaranteeing no limits for preexisting conditions. that costs money. and this administration -- >> it wasn't told that. yes, you had all the goodies and told it would not affect you paying more when we knew then and you and i talked about it then, you don't get something for nothing. now the reality is -- >> hell hath no furry like a voter scorned. the administration overpromised, underdelivered, people are realizing they can't afford it, even if they can get on to the system, which still 10% can't, and i'm waiting for the republic
, for five years! the economic failures that he is slamming are not george bush's, they're not bill clinton's. they are his. and yes, the obama record poses a fundamental threat to the american dream for millions of americans. he's got that right. take a look under mr. president. the income gap four times fast erbie comparing average wages to median wages, has expanded nearly four times faster than it did during george w. bush's terms in office. under president obama, 6.7 million more americans have fallen intopoverty. under this president, the same one who had the utd tutter audacity to stand before cameras and speak as though he has been absolutely uninvolved in policy for the past five years. i mean an extraordinary thought. the number of workers receiving disability benefits under his administration over the course of the past five years has risen by 20% to almost 9 million people. under president obama, the number of people receiving food stamps has risen by 50% to nearly 48 million americans. under president obama, 21.6 million americans are unemployed, underemployed or given up looki
in the white house about the way that bill clinton did that. >> kind of one of those things like you like it, but you don't. anyway, a second report now says president obama only met with health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius once face to face in the last 3 1/2 years. when white house press secretary jay carney was asked about it, he has a bizarre response. >> i wish you had called me beforehand. because i -- i'm in a very charitable mood today. so i won't go too strong on this. but that report, not the report you cited, but the published report that was written by an advocate is based on a ridiculously false premise. cabinet secretaries don't regularly get entered into the visitors logs because they come frequently. kathleen sebelius comes frequently. >> all right. so he's defending the fact that these meetings took place. although two reports now say that they really didn't. >> maybe they snuck her in the back door. >> i don't know. lauren, the fact of the matter is, he said that the reporter should have privately called him. are we to assume, then, that he did not want the
nixon, ronald reagan, bill clinton -- you look at their calendar and you can see what's important to them. even if you don't know anything about what was going on at that time, look at that calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> they say that -- they went on to say they have a list of all their meetings. 277 private meetings with 16 other cabinet members. 277 with 16 other cabinetmakers -- cabinetmakers, they pretty much make their own cabinets in the white house. so that just shows a lack of focus, a lack of interest. it remind me of the fact that i remember when james woolsey was the director of the c.i.a. with bill clinton. he didn't have much interest in surveillance, intelligence and international affairs when he got started. it all changes and people used to say james woolsey never gets to see the president. it does play into a narrative we're beginning to see. it's beginning to show the president, even though
's mantra. that was ronald regan's mantra. sometimes that was bill clinton's mantra. i want to hear that from mr. obama. he doesn't. he doesn't. he is trying. jared, i'm sorry, buddy, you know how much i respect you. >> same here. >> this president goes too much for redistribution. he just does. it's in his bones and he creates these divisions and today was the same old boring speech. i've got to tell you, either, a, get a new speech writer, b, get a new policy, preferably both. this is not the last. jared bernstein, the best of the best, jimmy p., thank you, gentlemen. i'm kudlow. i'm calm noun. i'm better now. >>> president obama hosted a big white house youth summit this afternoon, but guess who wasn't invited? you're about to meet the national chair of the college republicans who's going to tell us why she was stiffed and why millennials are deserting obama and obama care in droves. >>> speaking of obama care, we have another raft of new problems with the health care law to report today. that includes what looks a bit like a bailout for the insurance companies. i don't like that
of the former south african president. former president bill clinton tweeting this photo with this caption: i will never forget my friend bow bodeba. >> he bore his burdens with dignity and grace and our world is better off because of his example. this good man will be miss but his contributions will live on gofer: long walk to freedom showed enduring faith in god and respect for human dignity. and former secretary of state condoleezza rice posting throughout history, a few special people have been able to transcend differences and change the world for the better. nelson mandela was one of those people who had a those people who had a vision for when does your work end? those people who had a vision for does it end after you've expanded your business? after your company's gone public? and the capital's been invested? or when your company's bought another? is it over after you've given back? you never stop achieving. that's why, at barclays, our ambition is to always realize yours. on the table by not choosing the rit medicare d plan. no one could hav left this much money here. whoo-hoo-hoo!
force one. also word that former president bill clinton will be there as well. he has been talking about nelson mandela's legacy. president clinton telling fox news's ed henry that mandela gave him advice during the monica lewinski scandal, interestingly enough. he says that mandela, who spent 27 years in prison, taught him not to hate his enemies. >> i said, didn't you hate those people when you went in? i seen the pictures of you as a young man. you were really mad. he said, i realized they could take everything from me, everything except my mind and my heart. those things i would have to give them, and he said i decided not to give them away. and he looked right at me and he said, "neither should you." the heat was really being turned up in congress, and mbeki looked at me and he said, madiba told me to give you a message. he said i have no earthly idea what it means, but you would know what it means. i said what did he tell you? he said i should remind you not to give them away. >> very interesting. and there are the two of them in nelson mandela's jail cell on robben island. preside
in the state of the union. martha: that's right. >> you know, that's different than what bill clinton sought to do on jobs to try to work with republicans. soç two different ideologies here, and i think you're right in that jobs is going to be the big ticket item. martha: yeah. perhaps the big missed moment and opportunity in the presidency. we will see. bret, thank you very much. we'll see you tonight. bill: we want to hear from you at home with continuing crchs over health care healthcare.gov. would you trust it with your personal information? that is our twitter question of the day. @bill hemmer, @martha maccallum. this big social media hacking overnight, a big deal, atexted about two million people. i'm going to see the bartenders are holding sessions at the bar -- [laughter] talking about health care. good luck with that. martha: can i talk to you about your health care? all right, this fox news alert for you know now, anç encouragg sign for the economy as the labor department reports a sharp drop in the new claims of unemployment benefits. new jobless claims fell by 23,000 last wee
under president bush. when ronald reagan and bill clinton and george bush agree on something, so should we. this has always been a matter of bipartisanship and so we should continue that bipartisanship and pass this bill today. it's bipartisan baups it is a matter of -- because it is a matter of common sense that we don't want to make it easy for errorists and criminals to bring guns past metal detectors onto our planes and into security environments. -- secure environments. now, as the gentleman from virginia stated, in our view this bill is not perfect. i would have preferred to modernize the undetectable firearms act, to eliminate some loopholes in the law. y requiring that certain metal components be permanent or not . sily removed i would have liked to close that loophole. but frankly i believe that even a loophole in a law is better than no loophole at all, a loophole can be closed down the line, that is a preferred scenario to no law at all. and so i'm not going to oppose this first step because we can't get all of our steps. we will step forward and continue to support the moder
-term limit on presidents. i'm curious, if there was no two-term limit, do you think that bill would run? or do you think he he'd still let hillary run instead? >> i think should hillary clinton chooz to run for president she'd be an amazing one. despite all these problems, i bet if president obama could run again, nine out of ten democrats would want him, and he'd win. >> what has the gop accomplished in the past year? >> the minority party. harry reid hasn't let us pass anything. we've improved in the polls. >> the past couple weeks maybe but seriously. minority parties can put forward ideas and make things happen. >> stop the regulations. let's have a conversation, a beer conference again. i think that might help his numbers and republicans. and the onus would be on them. >> even republicans today just would not support it. >> i think think would. >> it would be wonderful, and i think we could all work together if we could get the it regulations fixed. i want to thank you for this discussion. you can go to facebook or twitter to weigh in on our fire back question. right now 43% of you
